Note from It Started With A Blog Author:

Hi Fellow Bloggers,

I have set high goals for my business, and as someone who is reading the disclosure page, I am guessing you have established similar goals for yourself and your business.

The possibilities with a blog have no limit for creativity or financial independence, and you are in control. I love it!

However, with no ceiling and an open door to market to the world, legal responsibilities cannot be overlooked.

I have provided full disclosure below either by providing the link to the specific pages for the Privacy Statement, Terms of Agreement, and Disclosure, as well as reiterated some of the information below.

Happy Blogging,

Above Excellence Educational Consulting LLC
